    what to do with eggs during worming

    I'm really hoping this EE isn't a roo <PICS>

    Help me out. This was sold as a pullet, but kaka happens. She spars with the rest of the pullets, but flares her neck feathers unlike the other sparring pullets. She looked like a rumpy when she was younger, but her tail is growing out thinner and curlier that the other EE's. She is somewhat...
